Sneakerheads in Singapore must be having a really exciting week.

In between Off-White designer Virgil Abloh’s surprise appearance in Singapore on Tuesday and the weekend release of the adidas Originals Yeezy Boost 350 V2, AW LAB opened at Suntec City on Wednesday (15 November).

The new store covers 2,630 sq ft and houses limited edition sneaker models from popular street style brands such as adidas Originals, Vans, Nike and New Balance, as well as their own fashion labels, Two of a Kind and Down UP.

For those who want to complete their athleisure look, there is also a range of sports apparel from sportswear brands such as Jordan and Under Armour.

“We are thrilled to bring AW LAB to Asia for the first time. Singapore has always offered its own style and sometimes the best way to explore a city is simply to walk the streets,” said AW LAB’s head of Asia, Giuseppe Nisi.

Founded in Italy, AW LAB is a sport-style chain owned by the Bata Group and has over 200 stores in Italy. The first AW LAB store in Singapore is located at the west wing of Suntec City, #01-341/342.
